Chicken Cutlets with Citrus Cherry Sauce Recipe

Chicken Cutlets with Citrus Cherry Sauce Recipe

You'll love the sweet-tart tanginess of this restaurant-quality chicken dish. Served with a salad, this is a meal to remember. It's also good with pork cutlets and dried cranberries instead of chicken and cherries. —Charlene Chambers, Ormond Beach, Florida
